Morning Joe beat out New Day in April

MSNBC’s morning political talkshow Morning Joe, hosted by former Congressman Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski beat New Day in the morning show race.

The networks were touting their ratings earlier this week, and surprisingly, New Day was nowhere to be found in the network’s press release. Even if the CNN morning show fell year-to-year, CNN’s publicists usually found a way to spin the ratings somehow to make it look good for CNN.

But not this time.

New Day was just nowhere to be found.

MSNBC, meanwhile, touted their win over the morning show hosted by Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota, and Michaela Pereira:

Morning Joe outperformed CNN in the Adults 25-54 by 16% (157,000 vs. 135,000). In total viewers, Morning Joe notched another monthly win (596,000 vs. 438,000), pushing the program’s consecutive winning streak to 14 months over CNN.”

CNN, for its part, has a shakeup planned for New Day. Pereira is leaving CNN, effective this Friday, for a three-hour program on HLN.
